  • Beautiful rooms, with magnificent ceilings, stucco and wooden drawers well preserved and restored, beautiful frescos, but unfortunately without furnishings, bare, cold rooms. Deserves the Zodiac and tapestry room. Always a piece of Italian history not to be missed.

  • Huge building with halls and rooms very different in their architecture and artistic features. Nice to visit in order to better understand the history of the city.
